Lobbyists: The only Romney bundlers we can be sure of

In the perverted fundamentals of the most secretive presidential election in a lifetime, voters are fortunate that Mitt Romney relies so heavily on lobbyists to finance his campaign.

By law, the names of lobbyist-bundlers must be released to the public.

By choice, veering from the practice not only of President Obama but of previous Republican candidates John McCain and George W. Bush, Romney has not revealed the identities of other bundlers.

According to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics, 25 registered lobbyists have raised more than $3 million for the Romney campaign.

The Muckety map above shows these individuals and their connections. We’ve included Sen. Roy Blunt (R-MO), who is not a bundler but is acting as congressional liaison to the campaign. His wife, Abigail, is a bundler.

Obama is voluntarily releasing the names of campaign fundraisers. Our Obama campaign page lists more than 500 of them.
